I have a chance to pick up a used CX cap for $375 but the front piece has come off & needs to get reattached.
The seller bought a new tacoma & was going to keep the cap even though it did not match (silver to MGM). He did tell me he was the original owner (07) & where he bought both caps.
At lunch I went to talk to the cap dealer since I have done business with him before & he enlightened me to the fact that yes the colormatch was an issue but more so, the front piece metal frame came off during the switchover. It would have to get reattached to be totally leakproof. He told me he would fix it for about $100 & the cap is worth $350-375 since finding them used is difficult.
The cap for me is mainly only going to get used in winter time, not year round. So what to do? I have no idea what they are talking since all my ARE caps were not for the newer tacomas. I just would like something inexpensive for the winter, more weight & gear storage for snowmobiling.
Any input or pics of said area is appreciated. I go see the cap on Sunday. Thanks
